Have you heard that a new orthodontic solution is now available on the market? It doesn’t involve any metal braces, it is thoroughly efficient in straightening teeth, correcting overbites or under-bites, and can take care of just about any problem with the alignment of your teeth. Invisalign® is a clear teeth alignment system that has truly revolutionized the field. It is easy to remove, hardly noticeable, and just as effective as regular braces.
If you are interested in having the Invisalign® system put in, you can always call on the services of Dr. Jonathan Cook, at JJ Dental in Fort Lauderdale. Feel free to contact our team at any time, in order to schedule your initial Invisalign® clear teeth aligner consultation.
The Benefits of Invisalign®
Forget about the pain and unsightly appearance of traditional metal braces. The Invisalign® system is specifically made to fit your teeth and make you feel as comfortable as possible with wearing it. As their name suggests, they are almost completely invisible, given the fact that they are made in clear plastic. To boot, you can also take them off at any time, when you want to eat, drink, brush your teeth or floss, without the inconvenience of the teeth aligners. What’s more, the procedure to have the Invisalign® orthodontic device installed is frequently less time consuming, compared to other similar methods. Furthermore, if for traditional metal braces you need to return to your dentist’s office, in order to have them readjusted or fixed, the Invisalign® rarely ever poses such issues, since it is made out of a more durable material.
The Invisalign® Procedure
Before you can have the Invisalign® teeth aligners put, Dr. Jonathan Cook will have to create a mold of your teeth. This way, you can be sure that the device is perfectly tailor made for you and your specific teeth issues. Then, once the impression is measured for size, Dr. Cook will provide you with several tray sets. You will wear the first set for some two weeks, then move on to the next one, and so on. The individual sets of Invisalign® clear teeth aligners vary by small degrees and these slight differences aim to straighten your teeth in small increments, over the course of some 9 to 16 months. The Invisalign® system should be worn all day long, but you can remove it if you want to, in order to eat, brush your teeth, or drink.
The results of the Invisalign® are truly spectacular – and they are all the more impressive, since they don’t involve the pain and distress that often comes along with wearing regular braces!
Invisalign® has been devised for the correction of adult orthodontic issues and it is not recommended for the use of children. Yet if you are interested in a solution for your child’s orthodontic needs, Dr. Cook will gladly recommend appropriate treatments that are used in pediatric orthodontics. They will correct help align your child’s teeth and correct any other similar type of issue with top quality results.
